DeSoto County Disc Golf Courses

Disc Golf is a sport played much like traditional golf. The two major differences are the equipment and the cost. Rather than clubs and balls, disc golfers use flying discs (commonly referred to as Frisbees™).

The discs are thrown through the air from a tee toward a target. Instead of a hole in the ground, there is a standing object of some kind. Anything can be used. The target of choice however is a "Pole Hole." A Pole Hole is a standing, usually metal object, that has an entrapment section. Also, the distances for a disc golf course are much shorter than that of a ball golf course.
